A bitch cried when it said Love, Simon meets The Raven Boys
A bitch is me, I’m the bitch

How am I supposed to keep my fingers away from this when they have the audacity to mention "The Raven Boys" and "Simon vs." in one sentence?!?

The answer is: I'm not supposed to! *lol*

This book goes straight to my TBR and I really hope that it will be able to keep its promise!
This sounds exactly like a book I'd love to read and I'm so here for it!

"Give it to me baby.... " *sings and walks away*

I heard gay and I was here for it, and then I heard dark magic and now I'm even more here for it.

Well, fuck. Guess I have a new highly most anticipated release. Small town magic, best friends to lovers, and a tight friend group? Take my money already.

Simon vs. (my all time favorite book) meets The Raven Cycle (Ronan Lynch is everything)?
It must me good, because the only time I was this excited for a book was before the release of Red, White & Royal Blue, and that is my 2nd all time favourite book now!
Also, look at that cover! It's so beautiful I'm literally tearing up!
May 12th is an eternity away, I can't wait that long. I mean I don't have a choice, but it will be sooo hard. I already set the cover as a wallpaper on my phone.

I mean ,who isn't pumped for gay romance? Not me. And did you mention dark magic? Did you just dared to picture(and write) a book of heavenly goodness for me? If you did,thank you so much. I cannot be more grateful!
